Fashion Crisis

So, if you're a friend of mine on (the super awesome) Facebook or you regularly read this blog (Wordless Wednesdays in particular) then you know that the boys seem to have an apparent aversion to clothing.  Well, just outer clothing really, they are perfectly fine in their underwear.  Just their underwear that is.  After posting the pictures of our Boys Night last week I have received several comments and laughs from this fact.  This is something that began sometime around last spring and has really become somewhat of a fad this summer.  It is a battle that Amy and I gave up on long ago.  I have no clue why they decided that being nearly naked was fun.  Apparently it's one of those "boy things" or at least that's what we've been told.  Despite our simple attempts at suggesting they wear clothes, more often than not they will bound downstairs with a loud "TA DA!" at the bottom.  The "TA DA!" being the big reveal (hands in the air and everything) that they are stripped down to their skivvies!  It's actually quite hilarious.  However, with school starting and getting back into routine we have tried to get it under control.  The freedom of being without clothes has been relegated to weekends, if they remember. 

So, I've stopped trying to hide or control it.  It is a part of our lives so why not document it in pictures, on Facebook, and via blog?  Plus I'm thinking ahead and down the road with fiancees and weddings.  I'm going to have some good embarrassing ammo!  HA!  So for now half-naked boys will be half-naked boys.  That's how the saying goes right?  :)

All is well, clothing optional, in Drosche Land.
